Kyle Korver Dunks for 1st Time All Season, Internet Freaks Out

Tyler Brooke@TylerDBrookeSenior Analyst IIJanuary 22, 2015


Atlanta Hawks wing Kyle Korver is more of a shooter than a dunker, but at 33 years old, the 6'7'' shooting guard showed everyone that he can still throw down on Wednesday night.

In the second quarter against the Indiana Pacers, Korver finished a fast break with a one-handed slam. According to ESPN Stats & Info, it was the first dunk from Korver since the 2012-13 season:

As a result, the Internet went nuts.

Kyle Korver's dunk in the 2nd Q was his 1st dunk since the 2012-13 season. He's been efficient in the paint so far http://t.co/4LqqtsXjkB

It's raining three's at #Philips! Kyle Korver is dunking! "Our pets heads are falling off!" Just a typical @ATLHawks game!

Of course, someone had to add "I Believe I Can Fly" by R. Kelly to the dunk.



It's been an unreal season for Korver, who is shooting 53.6 percent from behind the arc, but people seem to be more impressed that he can actually still dunk.
